This week I attended Yoana Baraschi’s GEMS event. GEMS (Girls Educational Mentoring Services) is an incredible team of people who give love to girls who haven’t had the easiest journey’s. These girls have been caught in the most devastating industry-the Commercial Sex Exploitation industry. Sometimes it’s hard to know how to help with things like this, but I’m amazed at how GEMS makes such a huge difference in these girl’s lives.
For this event we had a panel of incredible women from actress-Ashley Greene, to blogger-Wendy’s Lookbook, to Marie Claire Editor-Kayla Webley, to Entertainment Lawyer-Motisola Zulu and Designer-Yoana Baraschi. These powerful women shared their stories and gave encouragement to the girls from GEMS. The air was so thick with inspiration it was almost too intense to take in! Thank you Jesus for organizations like this-please continue to bless these amazing women!! Girls are not for sale, I repeat GIRLS ARE NOT FOR SALE!
The shirt I’m wearing was designed by Yoana Baraschi for GEMS and it’s actually reversible! I love how the text is under a layer of fabric and that you can wear the text on the back if you want… Thanks again, Yoana, for hosting this powerful event and for using your talents to bless girls all around the world!
